They (whatever other distro) can enjoy maintaining the patches to make
things work.
Fedora will continue to follow upstream kernel, based on principles.
I personally used to spin remix images for BBB and carry patches, but
it's just silly.

We need the bits to be upstream.... this has always been a win (not a
loosing battle).
So pardon my very public disagreement with you... it just seems that
we are not actually competing with other distros, but doing the right
thing the hard way. Ultimately everyone wins in the end. We are
willing to lose a popularity contest to maintain principles. And; by
maintaining principles the entire community (at large) wins!

For example, we are at the forefront of multi-platform support for ARM  kernel.
I believe the upstream devs cite Fedora as a great development
platform in that (MP) regard.
(your miles may vary)
